AMP Tutorials

Creating Users and Setting Permissions

1. Open the AMP GUI program. Along the top navigation bar, CLICK  Configuration > User Management.

2. With the “User Management” window open, CLICK the “Add User” button at the bottom of the window to edit the User Details and assign Access Levels. 

3. You can now create a new user. In the example below, the name “User 1” has been assigned.  CLICK on the arrow for the Access Level drop down menu.  User 1 has been granted an Access Level for Aux 1-6 Only.

NOTE: The Super User has a “Master Permission For Everything” as a preset.  Access Level Users can assign themselves to as many or as few permissions needed. 


4. After the User has been named and permissions have been defined in the “User Details” window, CLICK the “OK” button at the bottom of the window to save changes. You will now see the newly created User 1 listed in the “User Management” window under the Admin account. Along with the listing is the Access Level permission previously set for Aux 1-6 Only.

5. Next, open the “Access Level Editor” to view the current permissions. These can be edited, giving the option to add or remove permissions. CLICK the “Close” button at the bottom of the User Management window. CLICK Configuration > Access Level Editor on the top navigation bar.


6. Once the “Access Level Editor” is open, select the desired level (e.g. Aux 1-6).  Here, permissions can be added or removed as needed. Below the “Mix Access” section, note how the “Channel Access” section is open.  Enable permissions for Channel Access, Input channel, Output channel, Aux Output, Matrix, and DCA.

7. CLICK the “Apply” button to save changes without leaving the “Access Level Editor” window. 

NOTE:  The permissions for “Super User” are read-only and cannot be changed. Access Level Editor provides the ability to change the name of any selection from the drop down box. HIGHLIGHT the name in the drop down box. Then, enter the desired name.

Scenes and Shows

Scenes and Shows can be loaded by default. 

Opening Multiple Windows / Channel Strips / Locking Windows

1. Open the AMP GUI Program and CLICK File > Open New Window from the drop down menu.

2. The WDL File Selector window will open. Various selections are available. DOUBLE-CLICK on a selection to open. Or, CLICK “Load” at the bottom right to open the desired selection.


3. The AMP GUI Program is able to open multiple windows at once. Position multiple windows to work on as needed.   


NOTE: Although the AMP GUI Program allows you to open multiple windows at once, certain selections are different. The Channel Strip is one of these. In the example below, notice how an error message pops up when we try to open up a second Channel Strip. The same applies to all Toolbar, Talkback, Keyboard, and Scene selections as well. Only one can be open at a time.

4. The AMP GUI offers the ability to the “Hide Titlebar” to lock any specific windows in place. RIGHT-CLICK on a window to lock after positioning. Then, CLICK  “Hide Titlebar” from the drop down menu. The selected window is now locked. 

5. To reposition a window, RIGHT-CLICK to reveal “Show Titlebar.” CLICK “Show Titlebar” to resize and reposition the window as needed.
